Inscribed advance review copy of Goldman's thriller.
"The dentist meant fear, just like in Psycho, in the shower scene, that meant fear. There was something unconsciously terrifying about taking a shower with the curtain drawn, and it was the same with a dentist. You never knew what might happen next."
Goldman's most successful thriller, demonstrating that the best way to appeal to the public is to answer the age-old question: What's the worst thing that could happen to a graduate student? In a surprise twist, the answer involves Nazis and dentistry, and has nothing at all to do with the state of the academic job market.
New York: Delacorte Press, (1974). 8'' x 5.25''. Original red printed wrappers. Printed cover price of $7.95. , 309,  pages. Inscribed by Goldman in ink on title page, dated 27 Dec 83. Small scuffed patch where recipient's last name has been erased. Minor edgewear.
